Global Equities and Commodity Derivatives (GECD) is part of our broader Capital Markets & Derivatives area. It’s a world-leader in its field, bringing together the three complementary client-facing activities of Structured Equity, Flow & Financing and Commodity Derivatives. GECD relies on front-office professionals who are stationed across three global regions (Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific).
Structured Equity provides structured solutions for a broad clientele including retail customers, corporate clients, banking networks, insurance companies and pension funds. It provides its clients with customised or exchange-traded structured products to meet their capital protection, yield and diversification requirements.
Flow & Financing
Flow and Financing caters to the needs of institutional investors and asset managers. It delivers appropriate and innovative investment and hedging strategies in equity markets across the globe and provides access to financing solutions through its Prime Brokerage unit, stock lending and borrowing and synthetic financing. Flow and Financing also provides its clients with a rapidly developing integrated equity brokerage platform combining numerous research, sales, trading and execution service capabilities.
Commodity Derivatives provides a range of risk hedging solutions to corporate clients whose business is highly correlated with commodity prices (producers, refineries and transport companies, for example). It also provides investors with access to commodities through various investment strategies and structured solutions.
An entity dedicated to the Emerging Markets completes the structure of GECD to meet the growing interest in investing in this area, as well as the specific needs of emerging and growth market clients.
